Default Need help selecting 1/8 buggy wheels!!!

I have a 1/8 scale , 4wd buggy, and i need to get some new tires+wheels. The tires that came stock are crap, and i feel a little overwhelmed with all the different options available. Can anyone tell me what tires are good to buy?

Tires are selected based on the surface that you run on. So are you bashing or racing? Is the surface hard clay or loose? Run what the others use for a start.
